The Ska Vengers – Shut Your Mouth – Video

Why it has taken over three years to return to the Indian Ska outfit The Ska Vengers is a mystery of its own creation.

The Ska Vengers - Shut Your Mouth

The Ska Vengers

Although not a new song, nor even of a recent performance, the track Shut Your Mouth, captured live in England has this past week been made available. In the fond hope of new material, a reminder of The Ska Vengers.

Special mention is made to Karan Joseph, who died last year and plays keys in this performance.

XX – The Ska Vengers is available on iTunes.*

Switcheroo – Perfect Man – Single Review

The Indian alt-rock quintet Switcheroo released the single Perfect Man on the 16th.



Intermingling classic rock, metal, maths-rock and a splash of americana enables Switcheroo to create softly spoken music, that is underpinned by solid foundation of technique and construct.

Perfect Man (available on bandcamp), like a chameleon changing colours while crossing variegated terrain, continually changes frequency dynamics through its just over five and a half minutes journey, yet doesn’t overextend its visit nor loose audience part way through, rather invites the listener to take another dip in to the track and further explore the eddies missed first time around.

Big Deal – Are You Indian – Video

The Indian protest hip-hop producer Big Deal released the single Are You Indian on the 6th.

Big Deal

Big Deal

Are You Indian reflects of a specific long held division between the main body of India and the North East Region with a song title that is perfectly self explanatory. Whilst of specific focus to India these similar divisions are globally spread with countries dividing themselves in to cliques and factions with deep distrust between one another, for little purpose other than a narrative based on no rationale.

Ioish – 1313 – Audio

A few hours ago the Indian ambient-rock trio Ioish revealed the LP Reconstructing Dreams.

Ioish - 1313


The six song, approximately twenty seven minutes, album is comprised of luxuriant layers of progressive-rock that build quiet architectural complexities of multi-faceted washes that keep the listener focused within the angularity and extemporised feel of the compositions.

The antepenultimate track is the spectral 1313.
